Hello ladies! For those of you who don't recognize me, I was on the boards for several months after my partner and I went from not preventing to actively TTC. In March I had a bad HSG that revealed blockages on both sides, and at the end of March I had what looked to be a successful repair of both tubes. I had to go on hold after that because of a trip to Ghana in June (I'm considered high risk for ectopic so couldn't risk finding out I was pg over there). I got back last week, right around when I expected to O, but I had no O signs. I was sick though with a fever and stomach bug. By the end of the week, I was feeling better and started getting EWCM. I've been monitoring it all week-end and doing my OPKs, and on Monday afternoon, I got the smiley OPK positive. My partner was out of town, as he often is for work, but only an hour and 45 minutes away, so I hopped in the car and met him at a hotel. Totally seedy, I know, but I didn't expect to get to try this month and I wasn't going to miss the opportunity. We only got one BD in, but I'm grateful for a shot this month and can't complain.

I have never Oed this late- I typically O on CD 15 or CD 17, and here I am, at CD 24! I've read about a lot of women getting pg during a wacky cycle with either an early or late O, so I'm keeping my fx that I have the luck of the weird cycle. I'm also just glad to have a chance this month- I wasn't expecting it, and we think that next month when I O my partner will be in Arizona (we live in Arkansas), so not close enough for a booty BD call.

So I'm back and will hopefully get temps to confirm O in a few days. My chart is all over the place because of my temps while I was traveling. I'm not fully convinced that I am actually going to O this cycle, but I had decent EWCM yesterday and the digital positive got me excited. Hopefully those swimmers are zeroing in on a big, healthy target!

Hey Andrea, nice to see you again! How exciting that you O'd and were able to get in a session of BD'ing! I have my fingers crossed for you.

I'd love to hear about your trip to Ghana too!

Hi Andrea, welcome back! I joined this board from WTT in April so I may have barely missed you.


That's too funny that you drove to meet your partner at a hotel, TOTALLY worth the drive I'd say!! My DH was traveling last month during O and it was a total bummer. Now I might be traveling this month during O but I'll only be an hour and a half from home so I might be driving back to get a quickie in. ;)


Good luck this cycle, I hope that one BD booty call did the trick! Keep us posted!

Welcome back, Andrea! I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering how your trip went.

Woo hoo for a smiley face! And I wouldn't say it's seedy to drive out to a hotel to meet SO; exciting sounds better!

Hi Andrea, welcome back! Stranger conception stories have happened ;) That's pretty funny about the booty call. I hope it happens for you so you don't have to sit out next month. If you want to join us in the TTC thread, we can help you wait out the 2WW.

Welcome back Andrea! How was your trip?! Bummer you got sick... although that might have played a role in delaying O for you. Good job getting that BD in and GL for your 2ww!!
